Striper kw8 with kw6 and 2bktag06 and 4 or so ktag06 and top placed according to the static load test and casting. would the size 06 guide handle the knots on this rig?

Is a double wrap just winding up the foot of the guide and coming right back down or do you wrap up and end, coat with epoxy, then after it dries do another wrap up? And,, I know I read it here but, is A thread really strong enough for surf rod? It seems like A would look nicer. Getting ready to order my thread and as of now, going to order all A size?? Thanks, Joe the red letters says it all!
  7. NEVER quit your dreams my friend, no matter how realistic these guys are posting here. DON'T ever forget that ONCE they all started from ZERO. You can do it......keep walking!

Oh nice for the feedback. Any color sugestion Billy?
  12. Does anybody here have used the ROBISON ANTON polyester? don't know but their color are more bright than the madeira, therefore I don't know if it's just the color chart or they are even brighter. Could someone point me out some few colors to start? Like the basic ones......the ones you can't start without them....(like 20 or so spools),,,,there are so many colors on their catalog I got myself all confused.....LOL Playing around with a pvc pipe but now i need to go to the blanks.....and with the real tread......... tnx for the help
